Bethany piloted her shuttle, The Athena, with ease. The security system was of course back in place. After being recalled from the Dresden, again, this time being permanent, Bethany had reported back to command. There was much debriefing and then prepping for her new assignment. Bethany had done a lot in her career so far, but this was different. Not outside of her wheel house but different. Back to her roots, instead of where the years had led her. She’d made a stop off at Norda III to see T’Jal, Jake, and F’actar. It was good to spend time with them. T’Jal and Jake had wanted all the news about Dresden. Even after all these years the ship held a special place in their hearts. It’s where they had met, fallen in love, and spent their first years of their marriage together. And even after all these years Jake could still make the half Vulcan T’Jal blush like a school girl. All of their mentees got a kick out of it and they had all paid the price for laughing at her expense a little too much.

Bethany felt refreshed after having spent some time with them. Now, her shuttle was approaching the coordinates for the USS Asimov where she would be taking over as chief of security and employing her skills as an electronic warfare specialist. When T’Jal asked her what she’d be doing Bethany had answered, “I screw with peoples stuff, and when I can’t do that, I mess them up.” T’Jal had laughed and F’actar came around the corner, half Klingon half Vulcan, and roared with laughter, “I always knew you liked me better, Bethany!” It wasn’t too far off from what F’actar had done all those years ago when she’d served.

And there she was, she wasn’t a very large ship but she was impressive non-the-less. F’actar was in the shuttle with her. “I hate I had to leave Luna behind, I’m going to miss having her. I know Jake is totally in love with her though.” F’actar snorted, “I hate ya ain’t keepin ya shuttle, Bethy.” Bethany shrugged, “The ship isn’t big enough to hold her. Nothing I can do about that. I don’t like it, but it’s not like I’m going to need a quick escape from the crew.” F’actar nodded, but she still didn’t like it. She tapped the comms button, =^=Shuttle Athena to USS Asimov. Requesting permission to transfer over your new chief of security.=^=
Lt Cmdr Gadi, CoS

A response came. =/\=Shuttle Athena, Permission granted. Begin transfer when ready.=/\= On the ship, an Ensign waited to receive the new CoS. He stood, ready and at attention.


Bethany got up from the co-pilot seat and leaned over giving the old formidable half Klingon woman a hug and a kiss on the cheek. “ACH, Bethy knock that off.” Bethany laughed and stepped to the back of the shuttle. Her crate next to her. “Take care, F’actar.” The older woman nodded, “Watch your back and always look up. But Bethy....always close your back doors.” And the gold swirl of an older transporter shimmered to life and she was gone. =^=Asimov this is Shuttle Athena. Transfer complete. Safe journey.=^= The comm closed and F’actar glanced at the now empty shuttle. “Choose a good day to due, Bethany.” She keyed in her new heading and the shuttle made a smooth arc and then disappeared at warp.

Bethany appeared bag and trunk in tow on the transporter pad. She took a breath, looked around, and stepped off the pad. She looked at the chief, “I hate to be an inconvenience first thing but can I come back for that later once I find my quarters?” The chief laughed, “No need, Lt. I’ll get it.” Bethany nodded, “Call me Bethany or Gadi if you must be formal. Thanks, Chief.” She turned to the ensign in front of her standing at attention. She pulled herself to a crisp at attention, “Lt Cmdr Gadi reporting on board, Ensign.”
Lt Cmdr Gadi, CoS
